Through single molecule analyses on multiple sections each from more than a dozen glial tumors, a University of Washington-led team detected regional differences in mutational patterns within tumors. The researchers used a single molecule molecular inversion probe assay to assess cancer-related gene mutations and/or amplifications in three to five regions apiece from 10 grade IV glioma tumors, three grade III gliomas, and one grade II astrocytoma.
